Light Factory

About ERCO

ERCO is a leading international specialist in architectural lighting, using 100% LED technology. The family business, based in Lüdenscheid, in the heart of Germany, now operates as a global player with independent sales organisations and partners in 55 countries worldwide. Founded in 1934, ERCO pioneered architectural lighting across Europe in the 1960s, and today, less than 50 years later, is the first established luminaire manufacturer with a portfolio based entirely on LED technology. Around 1,000 committed and dedicated ERCO employees worldwide ensure that LED technology is developed from a pure technology into a sophisticated lighting tool - because perception-orientated lighting design,

implemented in the context of efficient visual comfort, is our mission. Focus at ERCO is given to open, interdisciplinary and international cooperation: While our ERCO luminaires are developed and produced carefully and with an eye on the future by our team at the Lüdenscheid Light Factory, our competent and motivated consultants at international ERCO sales offices ensure that they are used in thousands of different applications around the globe. We would be delighted to offer you the possibility of experiencing ERCO lighting tools in operation: in any of our ERCO showrooms worldwide as well as in workshops at our headquarters, and of course at trade fairs and other industry events.

About ERCO

ERCO acts responsibly in dealing with resources such as raw materials and energy - toward our customers, employees, and the environment. This is demonstrated in various fields of action: from our products and production to our corporate architecture.

The Light Factory in the digital age
When ERCO signalled that it was the first established luminaire manufacturer worldwide to develop, produce and sell light based entirely on digital technology, the news caused great excitement in the lighting and architecture sectors. “light digital” has since become our leitmotif, summarising our approach to reconsider lighting in every possible aspect based on the opportunities of LED technology. Development and production at ERCO are deliberately located in Germany, enabling us to guarantee ultimate precision and quality of our lighting tools – one more reason why we call ourselves the Light Factory. But is the metaphor of a factory not a touch outdated in the era of digital light? Not at all, actually. Whilst development work for ERCO LED innovations may, in some ways, be more representative of the agile, networked approach of digital start-ups, it is firmly grounded in the experience of an industrial company with a long tradition,

providing us with the means and momentum to concentrate on what ERCO has always done best: perfecting architectural light with ultimate precision. Every aspect of the process, from the design and development through to production and assembly, is handled under one roof. The short distances promote interdisciplinary dialogue whilst maintaining the superior quality for which we are recognised. Working with an international network of ERCO consultants, we keep our finger on the pulse of time and beyond, committed to the continuous development of products that meet the current requirements of architects, lighting and electrical designers in the field. One year after our complete and radical change to digital light, ERCO LED technology has now become a natural choice for creative and technical designers as a tool for more user-friendly and energy-efficient concepts of perception-orientated architectural lighting.
